Let's discuss 'Dollhouse,' shall we?
First, episode 1 was not my cup of tea. I did not feel even a teensy bit o' Joss or Mutant Enemy. Then I hear it wasn't Joss' original pilot.
Stupid FOX. Won't they ever learn? Three words: Firefly dvd sales. Enough said.
So, episode 2, "The Target," was seen as a stronger episode than 1 by the 'net folks out there. We are starting to see an arc; Alpha and his focusing on Echo. Why leave her when he killed everyone else around her? Joss is setting up the season's "big bad," me thinks, and we know how good Joss is with paying off on the arcs.
I didn't get how Echo could one minute be Miss Bad-@$$ woodman girl and the next she
can't run without falling down. How's that imprint working there for ya? I did like seeing how she's remembering her past imprints. Now we see what's starting for her; memories.
Which makes me wonder what happened to her that caused her to voluntarily sign up for this life.
Also, I am enjoying Tahmoh Pinikett (Helo!) as Agent Ballard. I saw him on Attack of the Show, on G4 Thursday or Friday, and he said Joss wrote the character with him in mind; Joss is a huge BG fan. How great is that for Tahmoh? Lucky!
WHAT is Mr. Dominic's deal with Echo? Is it just because she's such a huge security risk? He was really rude to brain-wiped, doe-eyed Echo. Loved the fist-to-shoulder thing though. It showed she understood just a bit that she was being mocked by Dominic.
I liked seeing back story on Langton. Harry Lennix is a darned good actor; I loved him in '24.' The banter with him and Topher (the one about the screaming, the blood, etc.) was good but it was the only 'Joss' banter I heard. Why is everyone so serious, Joss? I mean, Fred's got scars! I want Joss-speak! I want wit and humor, dagnabit.
